The Problem with Overthinking | Story | 13 Years Old | English Language | Author Ankit Gupta

Once upon a time in a quiet village, there lived a young girl named Maya. She was known throughout the village for her intelligence, but Maya had a habit of overthinking. She couldn't help but dwell on her past mistakes and worry about her future.

One day, Maya was preparing for a crucial school exam. She spent hours studying, but as the exam date drew near, she found herself consumed by anxiety. She couldn't stop thinking about her past tests where she hadn't performed as well as she'd hoped. These thoughts filled her mind, making it nearly impossible to concentrate on her current studies.

Maya's overthinking became so overwhelming that she found it challenging to enjoy even the simplest pleasures of life. The laughter of her friends, the beauty of the blooming flowers, and the taste of her favorite snacks all passed her by as she was lost in her thoughts about the impending exam.

Desperate to find a solution, Maya decided to seek guidance from an old wise woman in the village. The wise woman listened to Maya's worries and smiled gently.
